Continuity mistake: When Rose and Adam are in his workshop talking about aliens, during the exchange where she asks him about people who claim they've been in spaceships and he responds that he thinks they're nutters, Rose is poking around with her right hand at a storage shelf on the wall before moving her hand to a pile of boxes stacked on a table. When the scene cuts to a close-up of her, her hand has jumped back to the shelf. (00:12:40)
Revealing mistake: There are some moments during the scene where the Doctor is being strangled by the Auton arm where it's fairly obvious that Christopher Eccleston is holding the arm to his own throat. Namely, the moments where the hand isn't quite in the right position, slipping towards his chin.
Continuity mistake: After the Doctor freezes the Auton arm, its index and middle fingers are curled, while its ring and pinky fingers are straightened. When the Doctor and Rose are in the stairwell, most noticeable when they emerge at the bottom, the fingers of the arm are now all slightly curled.
Continuity mistake: When the Doctor pulls the arm off the Auton and tosses it to Rose, the arm is bent at the elbow and solid plastic, with a smooth, clean break. Later, particularly noticeable when Rose has left the department store, the arm is hollow, with an unbent elbow and a jagged break. The arm continues to change between the two appearances for the rest of its screentime.
Doctor: So, that's the trap. Or the test or the final judgment, I don't know. But if I kill you, I kill her. Except that implies, in this big grand scheme of Gods and Devils, that she's just a victim. But I've seen a lot of this universe. I've seen fake gods and bad gods and demi-gods and would-be gods - out of all that - out of that whole pantheon - if I believe in one thing... Just one thing... I believe in her.
